Expect Leaders to Aid In Shaping
Polley For Awarding of
Class Insignia
Al1 football managers are asked to
attend a meeting which will be held
at 5:00 o'clock tomorrow in the In-
tramural office of the Athletic Asso-
ciation onMaynard street.-
one of the hatters 'whch will oc-
cupy a prominent part in the discus-
sion is that of the awarding of nu-
merals. The awards have been made
for the past season, but is it thought
that the experience gained by the dif-
ferent managers, and the conditions
which have been met, would have
considerable influence in shaping up
a definite policy for determining who
shall receive the class insignia.
At the present time, approximately
300 men participate in interclass foot-]
ball. Four teams ar awarded nu-
merals--15 men to the team-making
a total of 60 class athletes who re-
ceive the sweaters and caps from this
sport. Basketball, on the other hand,
Is participated in by 450 men and,
with only six men on a team, only 24
basketball numerals are handed out.
The 13 relay track teams, with five
men on a team, give place for but 65
men, while four sets, or 20 numerals,
are given out. It is quite evident that
such a policy is not consistent, and it
is hoped that the managers of this
year's football team may have some
helpful ideas toward solving the diffi-
The official system as employed
during the recent football season may
come under the observation of the
meeting. General dissatisfaction was
current in the past when willingness
of a bystander was the only means of
obtaining officials, and it is believed
that the plan worked out the past
yeart may have been a great improve-
Intramural Director Rowe will ex-
plain to the class managers at the
meeting the working of the new Inter-
College Board, and the method of se-
lection of the Inter-College manager.
The new board is an innovation in in-
tramural methods, and will be made
up of class managers.
It is quite important that all this
year's football managers attend the
meeting tomorrow in order to have
a full understanding of the duties and
privileges of the office of footbal'
manager, even after the actual grid-
iron work of the season has come tc
a close.
Mile and Half Mile Candidates Hang
Up Good Marks For Time
of Season
With the dawn of the last week be-
fore the holiday vacation, aspirants
for Coach Farrell's 1916 Varsity track
aggregation yesterday began to push
their speed up another notch. Among
the distance men, one of the milers
did the distance in 4:54 3-5, with no
effort to make any race against time,
while among the half mile men, one.
of the candidates went seven times
around the Waterman oval in 2:17.
The freezing temperature outside

was not of sufficient frigidness to
keep several runners from circling
the new outdoor track, although it is
feared that most of them were out
there mostly for the purpose of see-
ing just how fast they could run.
Coach Farrell wishes to announce
that the first call for candidates will
be made directly after the end of the1
Christmas holidays, and it is hoped
that every man who has any serious,
intentions of making the track team
will be out just as soon as the call is

Senior Engineers Doped to Win Their
Game With J-Medies; J-iLts
to Practice.
Three indoor baseball games are
scheduled to be played tonight in Wat-
erman gymnasium. Owing to a little
confusion in the entering and with-
drawal of teams from the league, there
are in reality four games slated to be
finished by 9:00 o'clock tonight. How-
ever, one of the games will assurddly
be forfeited so that there will be no
interference in the regular periods al-
lowed to each contest.
At 7:00 o'clock the first game will
be called as usual. The games follow
in their order of contest tonight:
first, J-medics vs. senior engineers;
games scheduled for the second period,
fresh engineers vs. J-laws and J-en-
gineers vs. soph lits; third, fresh lits
vs. senior laws. At first glance there
appears to be a conflict in the schedule
but since the senior laws evidently
have no team, that game will be for-
feited to the fresh lits, and one of the
games slated for the second period
will be shoved down to the third
period. Which teams will have to
play in the third period will depend
entirely upon which ones are there
ready to play first.
The game between thes J-medics
and the senior engineers is doped to
be a one-sided affair. The medics have
not been working themselves to death
and no records can be found of their
winning their other game, while the
senior engineers have been working
regularly every night whether they
had a game or not and are consequent-
ly in excellent condition. In addi-
tion to the advantages of practice they
have the dope in their favor since
they have won all their games, and at
present are considered to possess one
of the strongest teams in the league.
As to the dope on the fresh engi-
neers and the J-laws, about all that
,an be said is that it .Is exceedingly
scarce. The laws have forfeited
once and since they have never been
seen in action no prediction can be
nade concerning their ability. The
teams to clash in the other game
charted for this period, the J-engi-
neers a-nd the soph lits, should put up
a good game. Dope seems to favor
the engineers as they have won all of
their games thus far, while the lits
have lost a game. Both teams have
lots of fight and have good batteries,
although the lits are a little weak
with the stick.
Since the other game is predicted to
result in a forfeit, there is small use
in trying to figure out relative
strength. The fresh lits were awarded
a forfeit in their last game and have
not played a regular game during the
cason, so nothing of any real value
is known about their ability.
At 7:30 o'clock the J-lits will hold
practice in the gymnasium. Every
member of the squad is expected to be
out ready for a stiff workout. A
strong comeback spirit is characteriz-
ing the junior lits and they are pre-
paring to wallop every team they mix
with in the future.


Coach Farrell and Dr. G. A. May to
TĀ£ake ,ladical Steps to Unearth
More Material
Due to the lack of any real track
stars among the freshmen who have
reported to Coach Farrell up to the
present date, Dr. George A. May, di-
rector of the Waterman gymnasium,
has decided to take radical steps in
conjunction with the coach in order
to find out if there is any ability
among those yearlings who have not
yet signified their intentions of try-
ing out for the team. Shortly after
Christmas holidays this plan will go
into effect.
Previously, before the gymnasium
classes had started, "Steve" Farrell
would give the men a short instruc-
tion in starting and running dashes.
He would put three or four men on
the mark and start them down the 35-
yard~ straight-away in the gymnasium,
-etting a new bunch on the mark as
soon as the first had gotten away, and
paying little attention to how the
frosh ran. According to the new plan
"Steve" will start the men with a gun,
and the time of each individual will
be taken, first from the 35-yard dash
and then later probably for one lap
on the track. The records for the
high-jump and 220-yard dash may
also be taken. In this way he can
get a line on any man showing class

enough to be considered.
sufficient ability he will

If he has
be requis-

tioned for the team.
In order to stimulate interest and
also to get the men to try their best,
track meets will be held either bc-
tween the lits and engineers or be-
tween the gymnasium classes of the
two days, Monday-Friday, and Tues-
day-Thursday. It is most likely that,
the matches will be between the lits
and engineers.
"All of these preparations are be-
ing taken in order to develop a good
track team for next year," said Dr.
May. "There is absolutely no ma-
terial out of which to build next sea-
son's team. It seems as if the high
schools had cut out track, for the
men show astounding evidence of
lack of coaching along that line. I
admit that it is an expensive sport, to
say the least, but it is a major sport,
considered so by all of the big col-
leges, so we must keep it up. If only
the high schools had that incentive
to make, them keep it up, matters
would be a lot easier for us. How-
ever if there is any ability among
these freshmen we will find it, for
under this plan of ours every man
will have to run and be timed. There
'is no way of getting out of it, except
by bolting gymnasium class, and a
man can't keep that up any time
without getting in trouble. In this
way we will be able to get at the man
who can run but who is too bashful
to come out and show us that he can.
There are a large number of that
kind in the university today."
